A Mellow Fellow

makes me happy.

The pressure was on this past weekend as the calender said it was time to let Dad know how important he is to us all and how much we love him...

and with mom laid up in the hospital, rehabilitating her new bionic knee, we knew we had to knock this one out of the park.

Or did we?

Would this man love us any less if...

the salad was over dressed?

Or the mushrooms were chopped too large?

What if we took a break to stick our feet in the pool?

Or if the steaks weren't exactly medium rare?

Would he loose his mind and freak out on these two guys?

I'm thinking not.

His love is kind that doesn't judge. That makes you feel like it's okay to make a mistake. That let's you know you're already good enough.

And when you sprinkle that kind of love on top of the steak, the salad and the mushrooms - add in one dog eating Yorkshire Terrier, and you've got yourself a grand slam of a Father's Day!

What a wonderful day, to be so loved!
That salad looks like one of our fav's, we call it Fancy Pants Salad. Nice greens, dried cranberries, apples, walnuts croutons, blue cheese with perhaps a raspberry vinaigrette?

Hope your Mom is up and around soon. Bionic, eh? Zooom!

My 3 Dads get a phone call, from across the miles, every year that tickles em pink. Dads are low maintenance like that. At least mine are thank goodness.

Looks like y'all had a YUMMY Father's Day!
